The information on this web site is the result of a year-long study project funded by the Research Support Libraries Programme (RSLP).
The purpose of the study is to explore collaboratively ways of improving the preservation and conservation of Asian documents in the UK. The project is a first step in the formulation of a national strategy to preserve these collections for posterity and to ensure their long-term accessibility.
N.B. For the purpose of this project the term ‘Asian documents’ refers to manuscript material originating from North Africa and the Near East across to Southeast Asia and the Far East.
